MR I think everytime a flash video is posted, there should also be an html5 version.

    I'd say about 80-90% of the people that access this site are doing so ever more on iPads/iPhones/iPod touches.

    Why can't MR be "html5 ready" like the NYT, Wall Street Journal, etc?

    Seeing today's post about the iPad user guide and being greeted with a huge missing pluggin image should be absent on a site like this. All I'm asking is that an html5 version be provided when possible, I realize at times there may not be.

    Thanks!

    Your numbers are off (I hope...), but I agree 100%.

    MR doesn't own the videos, so they can't just go republishing them. Until the original sources switch to HTML5 I don't think there's much they can do.

    all our videos tend to be YouTube videos which are HTML5-ready.

    There was just a url issue with today's post that prevented it from being viewable properly.

    Heh, what. I severely doubt it's that high.

    Unlikely. I imagine the majority still browse from laptops and desktop computers.
